Pink Perfection

Pink Perfection blossom

While most crab-apples have single-flowers, Malus Pink Perfection is unusual for having double-flowers - the flowers are made up of a much larger number of petals, with an almost fabric-like texture. This gives the blossom greater intensity, similar to the ornamental flowering cherries.

The tree is of medium-size, with an upright spreading form. We sometimes have dwarf patio forms of this variety.
